Please feel free to tell folks about DIYparts.org.  It is an on-line 
inventory for old computer stuff and for needs for old computer 

The idea is that it is too hard to dig through freecycle or 
craigslist if you need just a little part, or if you need a 
computer of certain specifications.  It is our hope that as the 
on-line inventory grows, you will soon be able to find someone near 
you who has exactly what you need, or what you need to get rid of.

Think of it as open source hardware.  The only problem is that 
hardware is hard to ship.  Problem solved.  Create a database of 
local hardware inventories.  Let a thousand memory sticks bloom!
